S2Killin It! Glen Villanueva’s Honda S2000
The usual car enthusiast will find his down time at home or some place with internet access and surf the web for the up and coming car builds and styles. In this case, that’s how i stumbled upon Glen’s S2000 you see here. The usual skimming through Facebook, my buddy posted up some photos from the Norm Reeves Honda annual car show and this car stood out to me. A few weeks go by and another car event came up, giving me the opportunity to meet Glen. Long Beach native and owner of Long Beach Auto Tech, Glen’s S2000 sets the standard on how to have style without gaudiness or overly accessorized mods.
The first thing that caught my eye was his choice of wheels. SSR Varden Sports??? You dont see these alot nowadays, maybe only in google image search… but which is definitely is a plus in my book. Secondly, the exterior is subtle yet flows with the lines of the car, enhancing the s2000 to be more sporty. And lastly, ive been having a thing for red cars lately and Glen’s is a prime example.
Be on the look out for Glen and his crew from Long Beach Auto Tech. Theyre a bunch of cool guys if you ask me. Also, a great source for your JDM needs…. i can vouch for them because i recently bought some stuff from them and gave me a killer price! Check em out.
Words from Glen:
“I had always wanted to own an S2000 ever since the first day I became involved with the Honda scene. I finally became an S2000 owner 2 years ago and purchased it from an original owner without the initial intention of making it a “show car.” The car was bought completely stock, but we all know once your into modifying cars you can never leave them stock. Since I own a mechanic shop that’s also in business for performance parts specializing in Honda & Acura, modifying it was inevitable. Eventually, my main goal was to showcase my products and the work that we do at my shop through my car. Even though we are new to the scene, we have been doing this for almost 10 years. I like the car because it’s simple and not over the top. Just enough so I can still have fun with it. The best part of the build has been the opportunity for me to meet a lot of people in the industry who have the same passion as I do. I feel mostly proud of the work I put in when I get behind the wheel of my car. It has been a great experience seeing it go through its changes and I look forward to seeing many more in the future.”
